Address: 83 Burlews Ct, Hackensack NJ
Refrence: Dan w/ exhaust leak on 335i.
Comment: Highly recommended. Small shop works with Rogue Engineering as their second shop basically as Rogue has a very small building with limited space for installs. Operated by only two of the most honest, experienced, and friendly people, not to mention they are huge BMW fanatics. They will even let you work on the install with them. I don't say this everday but they are the best shop I have ever been to; very professional, kind, and let you help with the install and watch since its only operated with two people they only work at one car at a time. I only wish they had a dynojet to complete my needs .

Contact: 203-653-2394 (George)
Address: 377 Elm Street, Stamford CT, 06902
Refrence: Dan w/ 335i
Comment: They do amazing work. Shop is setup great and is at an easy to get to, not hard to find location. The quality of work and service is also great. The only negative is that they don't allow you to go to the back where they do installs to watch. You have to wait in the waiting room or go to the Subway across the street while your car is being worked on due to policy and insurance issues. Other than that it is a great shop with great people although it would be nice to be able to watch and get involved with installs.

I've ordered items from Helix online. They have hosted meets and install days. They are active members/vendors on E90Post.
Reference #2: Alan w/ BMW 335i and Mini Cooper S Convertible
Comment #2: Installed my DPs, exhaust, and tune here for the 335i. Installed pulley and had oil changed on the Mini. Long drive, but totally worth it. Ralph even drove me into the city to kill time while they worked on the cars.
